Pre-Upgrade COP File
You can upgrade to Cisco Prime License Manager Release 10.5(x) from Cisco Prime License Manager Release 10.0(1) or Enterprise License Manager Release 9.x. While upgrading from Cisco Prime License Manager Release 10.0(1) to Cisco Prime License Manager Release 10.5(x) is a direct upgrade, upgrading from pre-10.0(1) requires one or more COP files. Depending on the upgrade path, you may need to download and install one or both of the following COP files from Cisco.com:
For information about which COP file you need to apply prior to performing an upgrade, see topics relating to license management in the Compatibility Information for Cisco Unified Communications Manager: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/unified-communications/unified-communications-manager-callmanager/products-device-support-tables-list.html.
The elm_Elm_v9_1_1_PlmUpgrade.cop.sgn COP file provides the means for a 9.1(1) standalone Enterprise License Manager server installation to upgrade to 10.x or greater standalone Cisco Prime License Manager software.
The ciscocm.version3-keys.cop.sgn COP file has the RSA keys that are required to validate the upgrade. Missing RSA-3 keys will, for example, result in status errors in the Software Installation/Upgrade window.
Validation will fail even if the md5sum value of the ISO is correct.
